Extended green hills, just like rising waves in the sea, chilling atmosphere wearing the blanket of mist, ever stretching sky over triangular tea plantations, Ooty is beautiful like a sweet teenage girl. She is the queen of Nilgiris, discovered by the British. Ooty always has an ambiance of romance and that is why many couples set off to Ooty to enjoy their honeymoon. Ooty is a visual extravaganza for tourists with its lakes, green hills, valleys, tea plantations, gardens and flowers. The great botanical garden spread in 23 acres and the fresh water lake made by John Sullivan, a British Civil Servant in India are the main attractions of Ooty. The flower-show in the botanical garden is famous for its rare verities of flowers and its immense number of spectators. The country side of Ooty gives a different visual experience especially the Sree Narayana Meditation Centre in the name of the great leader of Indian renaissance. Boating in the lake, trekking through the green hills, cycling through pine forest, and a refreshing stroll through the valleys will definitely refresh our body and soul. On your way back dont forget to taste Nilgiri-tea, homemade chocolates and fresh carrots. You can also have the pleasure of a toy train journey to Mettupalayam and Coonoor.
